My ds is in year 1 and doing pretty well, but teacher would now like him to put more detail into his writing. I am finding it hard to think of fun ways to help him practice this at home. Has anyone got any ideas? I don't want it to feel like a chore for him.
At our schoo, they do the "Let's Write" project, but to increase the detail they write in class they send home the topic on a Monday and we are asked to talk about it with them. So, for example, they were writing about caterpillars on Fiday so we were encouraged to talk to them about caterpillars through the week so they had lots of ideas. Ot was therefore less about doing more writing, and more about writing interesting things.
